Everything today will be about the arrest of Keith Williams over the weekend. Other things are happening, but you’re getting an abbreviated version of Flakes today.

I would like to recognize Brian Towle - he was so far out in front on the Williams story and the rest of the regular Nebraska media were hours behind us. It is bittersweet, however.

The University has a decision to make... or not. We don’t know whether or not there were provisions in Williams’ contract for something like this given his two prior. Whether he stays or goes is of less importance than determining if he has a real problem and how he’s going to take care of it.

You always defend someone in this situation if they’re your own. If this were an Ohio State receivers coach, we’d want them fired and thrown in jail. This is who we are as humans - not very merciful most of the time.

Time will tell us what will happen with Williams, and it probably won’t be that long a wait.

Bolt came from behind to win his third consecutive gold in the 100 meters, becoming the first man in history to do so.

Bolt was amazing to watch. USA’s Justin Gatlin got out to a great start, but Bolt outran him in the last 50m... those long legs, man, those long legs.

Gatlin is pretty damned good of his own right. They said on TV that he and Bolt were the only two men in history to have won three medals in the 100m at the Olympics. That’s pretty phenomenal, but Gatlin won’t have gushing stories written about him.
